SAN JUAN SACATEPEQUEZ OUTFIT FOR BARBIE DOLL
This beautiful outfit represents the village of San Juan Sacatepéquez. It was hand woven on a back-strap loom. The ensemble is topped with an elaborate headdress skillfully wrapped into the hair.

While traditional native dress has disappeared in many parts of the world, Guatemala remains a place where a high percentage of the indigenous people still proudly wear their traditional dress, called traje. Moreover, in Guatemala, Maya traje is village-specific or language-group related. Thus, with dozens of Indian towns and villages, and 21 different Mayan ethnolinguistic groups represented, the variety of indigenous costumes are truly dazzling.
